[Dovecot] PAM question

I get the errmsg:
auth|security:err|error dovecot-auth PAM:  load_modules: can not open 
module /usr/lib/security/pam_prohibit
That file is 444 root:security

What is wrong here?

Also, I'm using plain UINX authentication, but PAM keeps trying to run.  
How do I turn it off?

I'll probably eventually want to use PAM; how do I get it to look in 
/etc/pam.conf instead /etc/pam.d...or will it find it automatically?
